Home to ancient vampire legends, Whitby is swimming with culture. Perfect for learning some local Gothic history, browsing the shops for Whitby rock or taking a walk, Whitby is a great day out for families, couples or solo travellers alike.
The haunting Whitby Abbey, inspiration to the Gothic tale 'Dracula', should be on your must-do list of Whitby. Founded in about 657, Whitby Abbey is one of North Yorkshire's most celebrated sights and also offers the best views across Whitby.
Whitby is celebrated for having the best fish and chips, with people coming from far afield to try these award winning favourites.
